What’s the FLIP?

The FLIP is when you “Focus on your Learners by Involving them in the Process.” When you FLIP, you intentionally invert the design a learning environment so students engage in activities, apply concepts, and focus on higher level learning outcomes during class time.

My definition of the flipped classroom is a little different than others. I created my FLIP model in 2010 based on the integration of my graduate coursework, teaching philosophy, and experience in faculty development.

For me, the FLIP is the process of involving our students in the process of developing higher level critical thinking and analysis skills. It’s about more than videos!

The FLIP model and Bloom’s Taxonomy


When you FLIP, you will increase student engagement and improve learning. Your role changes from being the “sage on the stage” to the “guide on the side” as your students become more involved in their learning process.

It can be challenging to let go of some of this control in the classroom and allow students space to practice, make mistakes, and try again. If you’re not prepared, then the flipped classroom can become chaotic and overwhelming. That’s why it’s important to know how to structure this type of learning environment and what mistakes to avoid so you and your students are successful.

How to get your students to actually DO the pre-class work and come to class prepared!

I have been using various constructivist methodologies for nearly two decades, and while I have grown to be very, very comfortable with the “loose” structures that characterize this approach, I have struggled around how to create a coherent architecture for a class. Dr. Honeycutt’s workshop has solved this problem for me. This model has given me the framework I needed to build the logic model for any class. Even more, it provides a great framework for designing entire curricula. After your workshop, I have been using it consistently with great results. Needless to say, it was one of those pivotal moments for me, providing tools that will influence my career for many years to come.
